The celebration of Children’s Sabbath on October 14, 2007, included musical performances by the children of LCH and storytelling on Gospel themes by Thelma Ruffin Thomas.
Children’s Sabbath (October 14, 2007)
Music before worship was provided by several children of the congregation.
At right, a girl plays J.S. Bach’s “Minuet II.”
Our preacher was Thelma Ruffin Thomas, a storyteller from New York City, who illustrated the theme of gratitude found in the Gospel lesson of Jesus healing ten lepers. In addition to her stories—some new, some familiar, and some from her own life experience, Thelma involved the congregation in singing during the sermon time. Listen to this sermon (because of technical problems, the sound quality of this week’s sermon is poor).
More about Thelma Ruffin Thomas and her storytelling can be found on her website: <http://www.thelmasplace.com>.
